Hello! Has everyone had a good Saturday? Mine has been glorious! I started it by (finally) sleeping in a bit. The tournament last weekend really threw off my sleep schedule through the week and I was certainly feeling the side effects of that by last night. Then I chatted with my Mom for a bit before getting breakfast started.
I ate this while doing some blog reading. Very relaxing. Next up was to DS’s hockey game which was here in town. The kids played well and tied 3-3. We play the same team tomorrow, but on their ice.
It was almost 1pm by the time we got home so lunch was the first thing we did. I wanted to use up some odds and ends and came up with a toasted WW English muffin topped with 1/2 an avocado mashed with a LC cheese wedge and mashed sweet potato;
I wasn’t sure how this would come together, but it was incredible. I also had 3 Clementine's. At this point I parked my butt on the couch and watched some TV. Then I got to work making a batch of Mama Peas vegan chocolate chip cookies….only I used mint chocolate chips!
I tried one straight out of the oven and they were oh so good. I snuck another one later once they had a chance to cool completely and they were even better!
I used the pound of bison I bought at Whole Foods a few weeks ago to make burgers for dinner. I simply combined the meat with 1/2 a chopped onion, 1 egg, 1/3 cup of panko bread crumbs, 2 cloves minced garlic and dashes of dried oregano, basil chili powder, salt and pepper. I let them rest for about 10 minutes once they were formed and then set them to cook for 9 minutes on the George foreman. I topped mine with sliced Allegro cheese, Dijonnnaise, hot pepper rings, lettuce and a few hot pepper rings. Steamed green beans finished off the plate!
My parents just left a few minutes ago and I’m currently munching on a vegan almond joy bar that’s feeling camera shy. :D I have to get up at 6:30 am tomorrow in order to shower and get ready for our 8am departure time. Ugh….early mornings shouldn’t be allowed on Sunday’s!
Bye for now!!
